KHABAROVSK, February 29 (Itar-Tass) — The decision on the resignation of governor of the Primorsky Territory Sergei Darkin was expected, Russia's presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Viktor Ishayev said at a briefing on Wednesday.
“One of the reasons for the governor’s resignation is the low level of the population’s confidence in the territorial government,” the envoy said. According to him, the Primorsky Territory “was more ‘stormy’ than other regions in the Far Eastern Federal District.”
Responding to a question about preparations for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum’s summit, the envoy stressed that all the main summit facilities will be commissioned on schedule. First of all – the bridges over the Bosfor Vostochny Strait and Zolotoi Rog (Golden Horn) Bay, roads, the airport and other facilities. The presidential envoy said that “laying a water pipeline to the Russky Island in order to ensure the reliable drinking water supply” is among the top priority matters. The preparations for the APEC summit in Vladivostok in 2012 include the creation of infrastructure on the Russky Island where the leaders of the Asia-Pacific Region will meet, the building of bridges, capital reconstruction of the airport and the construction of several five-star hotels.
Viktor Ishayev believes that the plans for the summit preparations will be implemented in full and on schedule.
